A magnificent ancient Chong dZi with four stripes. It has been repaired due to an ancient break in the centre of the bead. This means it was originally found in two parts and then joined together to make the bead complete. It is now almost impossible to find Chong dZi of this type and even more difficult to find them in such a dramatic size. Despite the break it is still a very rare bead and can still be strung and worn.
Size: 90mm x 23mm
